first big girl sock - yippee!
Having started with a pattern for small basic sock pattern, and knitting approximately 10 to get out all the kinks. I have returned finally to show my first big girl sock.

The good news is that I have enough yarn to do the second big girl sock. I am in love with knitting socks!

On an odd note, in the middle of knitting this sock, I looked to see how others do the knit stitch. I realized I am doing something different.

I take my right needle and place it under the left needle, and through the stitch in the back and pick up the working yarn, and pull it through - as opposed to in front of the left-hand needle. So I am now confused if I am actually 'knitting'. The stitches look proper to me, but I am fairly new at this. Anyhoot - thanks for letting me share. Have a good day!
